I Want You Maniac is the new track by The Kut, released on Criminal Records. Produced by James LeRock Loughrey (Skindred / White Zombie / Sonic Boom Six / My Vitriol), The Kut -‘I Want You Maniac’ is an upbeat, grungy horror-pop track taken from the bands forthcoming EP. As a follow up to their ‘Make Up’ EP, the band are delighted to be back in the studio so soon. Frontwoman Maha spoke about the single, shortly after the news they’d been confirmed on the Camden Nightmare Festival line up today. “We’ve always wanted to put out a Halloween single, it’s always been our rock Christmas, and I Want You Maniac was the right track for us to celebrate it with. We are really happy to be on the bill of Nightmare Festival too, it’s going to be great to play it there. It’s been awesome working with James again and the video was a lot of fun to make… we envisioned it as a zombie version of pet cemetery, it’s a bit scary”
